on the economy or jobs. we have been very reactive to what is happening in the headlines, not atippal for a second president. but it is the soft under belly of the obama presidency. at then of the second sterl, if this chidoesn't turn around and unemploint ployment doesn't come down, the obama agenda will be a failure. they are making a huge mistake, trying to beat up on rich people, businesses and small businesses and raise taxes. the result of the policies, eric, is that unemployment will continue to stay high and poverty rates will continue to skyrocket. when you beat up on the rich, you create more poor and you make your budget problem worse because there are more people on welfare than there were before president obama came to office. >> what happened if there were more people on welfare and if the unemployment rate doesn't go down? >> that has to be the primary focus needs to be. there are two major challenges right now. first, this economy is focused for liftoff. in the corporate world, we are at the highest profit levels we have been since world war two. their productivity is

is up 5,550 points since then, just shy of the 14,000 mark. the economy is growing. instead of contracting. in the first quarter of 2009, the gdp contracted 5.3%. it grew 3.1% when the last time it was officially measured. though remains below where it was before the great recession, consumer confidence has nearly doubled. and a larger percentage of americans, 41%, according to our last poll, believe the country is headed in the right direction, up from 26% in january, 2009. on the other hand, there is plenty of data to support the idea that the drink country is not better off than it was four years ago. and that the struggling economy continues to take a toll on families. median household income is lower than it was in 2009. and 46 million americans live below the poverty line. several million more than four years ago. the federal public debt has increased from 10.6 trillion in january 2009 to 16.4 trillion now. then there's the big number that's exactly the same as it was four years ago. the unemployment rate. 7.8%. though it's down from, of course, a high of 10% in octobe

economy into a ditch to make a point that even we don't understand and that is against the constitution, that might not be a great idea. nobody broke ranks when the republicans did this in 2011. nobody on the republican side. but today on the republican side somebody did. today republican senator lisa murkowski of alaska broke ranks. she gave an interview to her hometown newspaper in alaska, she says she disagrees threatening the country with default. quote, murkowski is breaking rank, saying the country has a duty to assure it pays its bills. murkowski said not all of her colleagues in the senate will say it out loud, but she believes most agree that failing to raise the debt limit would harm perception of the country. quote, if you incur an obligation, you have a responsibility to pay for that, murkowski said. time is going the tell if lisa murkowski is the first republican to break ranks or if she is the only republican to break with republican leadership on this issue. but the fact that she has done it already makes this a better movie than it was in 2011. stay tuned. ♪ [ male ann
